  Emperor Huizong (Song Dynasty) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When the Jurchen of Manchuria founded the Jin Dynasty and attacked the Liao kingdom to the north of the Song empire, the Song court allied with the Jin and attacked the Liao from the south.
Not content with the annexation of the Liao kingdom, and measuring rightly the weakness of the Song empire, the Jin soon declared war on their former ally, and by the beginning of 1126 they crossed the Yellow River and came in sight of Kaifeng, the capital of the Song empire.
The Song empire, however, had to sign a humiliating treaty with the Jin, agreeing to pay a colossal war indemnity and to give a tribute to Jin every year.

 Song Dynasty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Northern Song (960-1127) signifies the time when the Song capital was in the northern city of Kaifeng and the dynasty controlled all China.
The Song dynasty is notable for the development of cities not only for administrative purposes but also as centers of trade, industry, and maritime commerce.
On March 19, 1279 the Song army was defeated in its last battle, the Battle of Yamen, fought against the Mongols in the Pearl River Delta; subsequently a high official is said to have taken the boy emperor in his arms and jumped from a clifftop into the sea, drowning both of them.

 FDIC: 1994 - Docket No. FDIC-92-140e, FDIC-92-350k
Song was named as a Respondent in both Notices, although he was only named as a Respondent for purposes of the penalties pursuant to section 1818(i) arising from violation of cease and desist orders.
During Song's tenure as a director of the bank there were 13 meetings convened of the bank's board of directors, of which he attended none, completely failing to perform his fiduciary obligations as a director.
Respondent Song's failure to attend meetings of the Board of Directors during the period September 8, 1988 through March 30, 1989 was reckless, part of a pattern of misconduct and increased the risk of loss to the Bank.

 Song Dynasty, Sung Dynasty
Artistically and culturally, the Song Dynasty was driven by a phenomena of self-refinement that pivoted on the teachings of Confucian but adhered to the principles of Taoist Buddhism.
The Song Dynasty ranks alongside the Han Dynasty (206 BC - 220 A.D.) and the Tang Dynasty (618 - 906 A.D.) in importance of fine Jade and Bronze Treasures.
The study of Song Dynasty jades is incomplete without an understanding of this phenomena and its mysterious manifestation in the Jade arts of the time.

 10. Conquest of Southern China
Khubilai had earlier sent an emissary, Hao Ching, to the court of the Song Empire with the hope of a peaceful solution, but he never came further than the border where he was detained as a spy.
Liu Cheng, the defector from Song, whom had informed Khubilai about the Song Empire political and military weaknesses, and Shih T’ien-tse, whom had joined the Mongolians before Khubilai’s seizure of power, was among the more prominent of the Chinese generals.
In 1279 CE, the Song Empire’s fleet was crushed at Kanton.

 Chinese History - Song Dynasty (www.chinaknowledge.org)
The Song time is often called a "Chinese Renaissance" because - similar to the European renaissance - progress in technology and inventions, the upcoming of new philosophical interpretations of the old texts meant a renewal of the old and the creation of new streamings.
The Song period is marked by a revival of old Confucian traditions after the Tang age of Buddhism, and the prevailing position of civil scholars over the military age of Tang and Five Dynasties.
But Song culture was also a culmination of the heritage of two thousand years of culture, and from this point of crystallization on, Chinese thinking became orthodox, culture became sterile as if it had been unchanged since thousands of years.

 InternetEd Reviews: Queensryche- Empire   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
The music on Queensryche's Empire is basically complex hard rock [or progressive rock, if that's what you want to call it] with high (but not shrill) singing and lengthy song structures.
Other great songs include "Silent Lucidity," a Pink Floyd influenced ballad with deeply resonant vocals and a symphonic backing, which is probably Queensryche's best known work, along with "Jet City Woman," a massive sounding radio mainstay.
Regrettably, some of the songs on Empire sound a bit dated with that early '90's coming out of the '80's sound: the last three songs are the most obvious ones with this quality.

 Kublai Khan, the Son of Heaven
The resilient Song Chinese, with far more resources to draw upon than the kingdoms of western Asia, proved to be more than a match for the Mongols and handed them their toughest war.
At the time, the Mongol Empire encompassed all the land from China's Yellow River to the shores of the Danube River in eastern Europe, and from Siberia to the Persian Gulf, an area twice the size of the Roman Empire at its greatest extent.
Kia Sedao's cowardly act of self-embellishment, preening himself as the savior of Song China, laid the groundwork for the destruction of the Song Dynasty.

 Notes on Asia
Though Song armies were large, their commanders were rarely the most able men available, and funds needed to upgrade weapons or repair fortifications were often diverted to the scholarly pursuits and entertainments of the court and gentry.
At the court and among the ruling classes throughout the empire, painting and poetry, which account for some of the most splendid achievements of the Song era, were cultivated, while the horsemanship and hunting that had so preoccupied earlier rulers and their courtiers went out of fashion.
Song armies and warships were also equipped with naphtha flamethrowers, poisonous gases, and rocket launchers that were perhaps the most effective weapons the dynasty employed in its losing struggle to check nomadic incursions.

In 1127, however, it lost the northern part of China to a new empire, the Chin, and relocated its capital to the south in Hangchow.
But the southern empire fell to the same forces that swept over northern China in the thirteenth century: the Mongols.
After conquering the Chin empire, the Mongols then set their sights on the Southern Sung and quickly overran the empire.

 Imperial Era: II
From Tang times until the closing days of the Qing empire in 1911, scholar-officials functioned often as intermediaries between the grass-roots level and the government.
Domestic economic instability and military defeat in 751 by Arabs at Talas, in Central Asia, marked the beginning of five centuries of steady military decline for the Chinese empire.
The division was caused by the forced abandonment of north China in 1127 by the Song court, which could not push back the nomadic invaders.

While Operation: Mindcrime is their most highly-praised album, Empire remains their most accessible, with a somewhat more commercial approach that has no negative impact on the quality of the material.
If you only know Queensryche for one song, it's "Silent Lucidity." Granted, it's a bit simpler than much of their work, but just as with "Anybody Listening?", it is a wonderful journey of the mind, "trying to explain to someone the unexplainable," in the words of vocalist Geoff Tate.
These songs are in the normal verse-chorus format, with amazing solos and guitar harmonies, intelligent lyrics, creative chords, and pure heart and soul.

 Amazon.com: Empire Burlesque: Music   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
Empire Burlesque has one thing in common with Self Portrait, Street Legal and every other Bob Dylan album that is panned more often than not: If it had been released by an little known upstart, it would have been accepted, maybe even acclaimed.
Every song on Empire Burlesque, with the exception of the gorgeous finale, "Dark Eyes," which Dylan performed unaccompanied, could have benefited from being giving some breathing room with the elimination of one or a few back-up vocals or instruments.
Granted, as much as I like Empire Burlesque, it has to be careful with itself because as it goes from one song to the next you almost feel like you're going to hear this as a soundtrack for a really syrupy Cameron Crowe movie, and that's no good.
